    Guidance notes:

    The ‘why you think you would be suitable for this position’ question is the most important part of this application form.

    You should consider the following:

    • Applications can only be assessed on the information you provide. You need to clearly demonstrate your capabilities.
    • You need to explain how you meet each of the person specification points and provide examples from your previous experience. Remember to present this in relation to the job description.
    • Often the strongest applications are those that link the three elements highlighted above and are presented in a clear format (e.g. numbered points that correspond to each person specification).
    • We expect your supporting statement to be a minimum of ¾ of a side of A4 and a maximum of 2 sides. (We suggest drafting it out in a word processor first and then copying and pasting it into this form – this will ensure you don’t lose the information.)
    • Use concise, unambiguous sentences and avoid exaggerations.
    • Honesty is always the best policy; please do not make false claims.
    • Ensure you return your application in good time before the closing date – aim for the day before the deadline.
    • Use concise, unambiguous sentences and avoid exaggerations.
